88 Riches online slot’s theme has been based on superstition by making use of symbols that represent good luck in Chinese culture. Although the theme is quite attractive, you should expect basic 3D graphics and limited features.
This is a low volatility paying out little and often with a welcome gamble feature. Players are regularly given the opportunity to double their winnings in a 50/50 game of cards, which works well on this style of slot. There is also a free spins round which does not appear often, but when it does, sticky wilds come into play making it a valuable feature with the potential to pay out some big wins.
As far as slots go Game Art’s 88 Riches online slot is very basic in terms of sounds and graphics.
GameArt has opted to go for gameplay that gets right down to business.
The graphics are clear enough, but there are no animations or special cinematic effects. Symbols do come alive by being slightly enlarged when you land a winning combination, which is about as good as it gets.
As for the sounds, the highlight of the show is the drum roll during the gamble feature. There are some other minor sound effects that play out when a winning combination lines up on a pay line, but this is nothing special.
Also, when Jing Jang symbol lands on the reels, the slot lets out a thumping sound in anticipation of the ever-looming bonus round, and that pretty much rounds up 88 Riches sounds and graphics capabilities.
On 88 Riches the symbols are befitting of the Chinese theme. The Highest paying symbol is the ‘Gold Chinese Character’. Land 5 of these on any pay line and you are paid 1,000x the line bet, for 3 the payout is 100x and 3 symbols 50x the line bet.
Next, the ‘Bonsai Tree’, ‘Gold Chinese Pillar’, ‘Purple Fish’ and ‘3 Red Lucky Money Bags’ symbols all pay an equal amount of 200x the line bet for 5 on a pay line.
After this, landing 5 ‘Ace’ or ‘King’ symbols will pay 150x your line bet. Then, if you line up 5 ‘Queen’ or ‘Jack’ symbols on a pay line you will be paid 100x your line bet. For 5 ‘Ten’ or ‘Nine’ symbols your payout will be 60x your line bet.
Lastly, there are the scatter symbols on reels 1, 2, and 3. You will be paid a x2 multiplier of your entire spin bet for landing 3 on the reels simultaneously regardless of the position they land.
Note: The payout amounts mentioned above are based on the amount “bet per 5 lines”. The amount you select will be divided by 5 to determine your actual bet per line.
For example, if you select the minimum “bet per 5 lines” of $0.01, your final bet will be $0.002 per line. Your total spin bet across all 50 lines will be $0.01 x 10 = $0.10 per spin. Select the maximum “bet per 5 lines” of $0.50, and you will be wagering $0.10 per line. In this case, the total spin bet will be $0.50 x 10 = $5.00.
On 88 Riches online slot there are only 2 very simple bonus rounds:
Bonus Feature Free Spins: Land the Jing Jang symbol just 3 times on reels 1, 2, and 3 in any position. Firstly, you will be paid out a multiplier of your spin bet. Next, the bonus free spins round will be triggered with 10 free spins. During the bonus round any wild symbols that land on the reels will become a sticky wild staying fixed in the position it landed for the remainder of the free spins round. Jing Jang symbols that land underneath the wild symbol will contribute towards further scatter wins.
Gamble Feature: To make sure you have the option to gamble you need to go to the red settings tab in the bottom left-hand corner of the slot and activate the gamble feature. Once it is activated, to trigger the gamble feature, all you need is a combination win. 88 Riches will then give you the option to gamble your winnings by selecting the green gamble option. If you do not want to gamble, then just continue spinning the reels.
When you opt to gamble, you will be taken to a card game where you will need to correctly guess the color of the next card that comes out of the pack. If you win, you will be paid even odds on the bet, then you can either ‘Take’ to collect your winnings or choose to ‘Gamble’ to continue. After a maximum of 5 successful wins, you will be exited from the gamble feature.
88 Riches online slot’s wild symbol is the gold 88 dragon symbol, which is only present on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th reels. It substitutes for any other symbol on the slot except for the scatter symbol. It can extend the value of a combination win by landing on the end of a row of symbols, it can help begin a symbol combination by landing on reel 1, and complete a combination win by landing in the middle of a sequence of symbols. In each of these cases, it will act as a wildcard symbol. The wild also becomes a sticky wild every time it lands on the reels during the free spins rounds.
